For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to move back through the $45,093 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $46,741 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from $46,500 levels.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Monday’s high $46,874.0 would likely cap the upside.

In the event of a broad-based crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $50,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $48,523.

Failure to move through the $45,093 pivot would bring the first major support level at $43,311 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$41,000 levels. The second major support level at $41,663 and the 38.2% FIB of $41,529 should limit the downside.
